Kybella® treatments

Monroe MedSpa in Rochester, NY is excited to offer Kybella – the only FDA approved injectable to get rid of fat. Now you can get rid of your pesky double chin without surgery! While injectables have always been used to reverse the signs of aging in faces, there was no great solution for getting rid of extra fat around the jowls and under the chin without surgery. Now you can with Kybella (deoxycholic acid).

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness – commonly referred to as “double chin.” Kybella can significantly improve chin contouring without the invasiveness and downtime of surgery. Most clients will require 3-5 treatments for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kybella

What is Kybella and what is it for?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common, yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, submental fullness may not go away, and it can make you look older and heavier than you actually are!

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body (deoxycholic acid) that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella causes destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat.

What is a Kybella appointment like at Monroe MedSpa?

Monroe MedSpa's typical Kybella appointment is usually a 25-30 minute in-office treatment performed by one of our medical injectors. Our providers will answer any questions you have prior to starting, and will then perform the procedure. Using Dr. Ben Tracy's Kybella method, a cannula is used to slightly "break up" the fat under the chin while simultaneously injecting the Kybella. The Kybella has some lidocaine in it, so the procedure should not be painful. You will leave the office with an ice pack for the treatment area, and our provider will educate you on any post-care you need to adhere to.

What side effects may occur after Kybella?

As with other injectable treatments, clients may experience side effects, the most common side effects being swelling, bruising, soreness, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area. We usually find that most of those side effects diminish over the following weeks and months. To us, these side effects mean that Kybella is working! In clinical trails, the side effects that people experienced with Kybella became less bothersome with subsequent treatments, essentially because there were less fat cells to destroy.

How long until I see results?

Everyone is different: results vary based on how quickly each individual's body gets rid of the "dead" fat cells. You may potentially see a difference within a few weeks, however we have seen our patients have the biggest difference within 3 months. At the 3 month mark, you and your provider may decide on whether or not more Kybella is necessary to achieve your desired results (which is normal).

How long do results last?

Because Kybella is destroying fat cells, making the cells unable to store fat at all, Kybella is considered a permanent non-surgical treatment.
